How do we know who God is using?

Question was asked, “How do we know who God is using?”

Christian response,

God uses everyone…nothing is wasted…you are used by God for His purposes or you are used by God to display His wrath for disobedience through your servitude to Satan…but everyone is used as a vessel either for honor or dishonor…the distinguishing factor as to how God uses us is our decision concerning the Son, Jesus Christ.

  1. Hey Rickey, I’ve got a question for the blog. At my college, the existence of God is a very hotly debated topic. Aside from some strong Christians and strong atheists, who are very firm in their conclusions, most people, including myself, just aren’t sure either way. What’s the answer?

    1. Hi John, there are truly no atheists. Every man and woman having attained an age of reason/discernment intuitively knows that our Creator exists and they are “without excuse.” If a man or woman tells you that they don’t believe in God, they’re a liar and the truth is not in them.
      Romans 1,
      18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of people who suppress the truth [m]in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known about God is evident [n]within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, that is, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, being understood by what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21 For even though they knew God, they did not [o]honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their reasonings, and their senseless hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and they exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible mankind, of birds, four-footed animals, and [p]crawling creatures.

      24 Therefore God gave them up to vile impurity in the lusts of their hearts, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. 25 For they exchanged the truth of God for [q]falsehood, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed [r]forever. Amen.

      26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged natural relations for that which is contrary to nature, 27 and likewise the men, too, abandoned natural relations [s]with women and burned in their desire toward one another, males with males committing [t]shameful acts and receiving in [u]their own persons the due penalty of their error.

      28 And just as they did not see fit [v]to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a depraved mind, to do those things that are not proper, 29 people having been filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, and evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and malice; they are gossips, 30 slanderers, [w]haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unfeeling, and unmerciful; 32 and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also approve of those who practice them.

      1. Thanks Rickey, that really does help. How do you suggest that I cool down the debate on campus, and work towards some kind of conclusion? I fear that the atheists’ incessant debating is permeating every aspect of the college, including areas in which it is not welcome. Any thoughts?
        Thanks, John

      2. The atheist and their nihilism is under girded by the infusion of Darwin as a “biological science” in 1963 and Marx-Lenin as the only viable option to capitalism in the humanities…so our Universities are a bastion of Atheism and the god of Atheism is Satan…he has dominion on most campuses today and John Dewey’s Marxist utopia is extant there as well. Having debated the Atheist for years, I’ve come to the conclusion that the best I can do is to tell them the Truth concerning what the Holy Spirit has provided in the Canon and what I know to be the Truth in my own life having walked intimately with my Lord for over 28-years. When they mock, ridicule, blaspheme my Lord in rebuttal and reject my words…I walk away. Thank you for pursuing Truth…thank you for your courage.
